The cats can relax. Now that the Popeâ€™s gone home, Iâ€™ve stopped shouting at the TV. Who does he think he is, coming over here and telling us weâ€™re â€œaggressive secularistsâ€, and why does he imagine that the thousands of people who live here quite happily without religion have no morals? As for all that rubbish about atheists and the Nazis â€“ he obviously reads the wrong history books.
Iâ€™ve complained to the BBC about the coverage â€“ too much of it, too biased, too silly. Iâ€™m hoping that lots of other people did too, or they may not take much notice. They may not take much notice anyway. If that were the case, I might boycott BBC News, if it werenâ€™t for the lovely Gavin Esler.
I wasnâ€™t at the grammatically incorrect â€˜Protest the Popeâ€™ demonstration, but lots of people I know were, so thereâ€™s loads of stuff about it on the Internet.
If you didnâ€™t find any of it, hereâ€™s some thatâ€™s worth reading…
This is what the Pope said when he arrived, immediately insulting and upsetting a significant proportion of the UK population.
Dr Evan Harris, the former MP who campaigned for the scrapping of the blasphemy law, gave a lesson in secularism for the ignorant.
The BHA’s Andrew West took lots of photographs of the Protest the Pope march and rally in London last Saturday. Just click on a picture to see it large.
The BHA’s other Andrew, Mr Copson, gave the first speech at the same rally.
The BHA’s Bob Churchill answers some of the protesters’ critics in Humanist Life.
Dr Ben Goldacre has something to say about the Pope and AIDS.
I’m sure you can find lots more.
